GAME 1

Dus-Chotimirsky - Mieses

St Petersburg 1909
Queen's Pawn Opening

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 d6 3.Nc3 Nbd7 4.e3

After 4.e4 the continuation might b e4...e5 5.Nf3 g6 6.Bg5 h6 7.Bh4 Bg7 8.Bg3

4...e5 5.Bd3 g6 6.f4 Qe7 7.Nge2 e4A premature attempt at attack. Instead 7...Bg7 followed by 8...0-0 and using the king's rook on the e-file was indicated.

8.Bb1 c6 9.Qc2 Nb6 10.b3 Bf5 11.a4

11.Ng3would have been simply met by11...O-O-O

11...Rc8 12.a5 Na8 13.Ba3 Qe6 14.Qd2 d5 15.Bxf8 Kxf8 16.cxd5


White:Dus-Chotimirsky;Black:Mieses

This exchange was unnecessary. White ought to have continued at once with 16.Na4 and if 16...dxc4 then 17.Nc5 would follow with an excellent game.

16...cxd5 17.Na4 Kg7 18.O-O Nc7 19.Nc5 Qc6 20.Rc1 Qb5 21.Nc3 Qc6 22.Ne2

 White might very well have continued 22.b4 b6 23.axb6 axb6 24.N5a4 Nb5 25.Ne2 Qd6 26.h3and White has a slight advantage.

22...Qb5 23.Nc3 Qc6 24.Ne2 Qb5 25.Nc3 Qc6 26.Na2 Qb5 27.Nc3 Qc6 28.Ne2 Qb5

1/2 - 1/2
